I looked around for a week or so
Think I was looking for a reason to get up and go
And I never found nothing but a heart so true
Yes I don’t have a thing if I don’t have you

I closed the cover on the saddest book
You’ve been writing your whole life and only a few know
And I’ve never tasted a tear like this
At the end two lovers die and never kiss

If you’re gonna say something
Go on say everything
Don’t just say anything
If you’re gonna love someone
Do it honestly
and completely

I saw a moon and it shines so bright
I think I burned my skin in the middle of the night
And they say you can never choose your turn
But you can make up your mind
and just watch it wind away

And you bet the house on a bullshit hand
You knew what you were doing
You just didn’t give a damn
And it’s not easy getting down so low
You just lay there in the fire burning smoke

If you’re gonna make something
Make a plan tonight
Follow through this life

If you’re gonna break something
Break it open wide
And there’s nowhere left to hide

Today I saw a temple built
In the time it took to swallow all this guilt
